I want to add a link that is visible on my Dashboard Page to a secure web page. I do not want this link on my Blog page. I have successfully edited index.php in wp-admin to show this link but when I save the file the redirect to the login page is disabled and the page is accessible by simply typing in the URL to that page at the administrator level.
Am I not permitted to edit this file ? If I am what do I need to do to make sure the redirect to the WordPress login page is ivoked when trying to access the page.
